What are the main ideas in Dalton's atomic theory? How do they help explain the laws of conservation of mass, of constant composition, and of definite proportions?
Step 1 of 3
Solution : I is the chemical symbol of Iodine and F is the chemical symbol of Fluorine. The given compound has 1 atom of Iodine(I) and 5 atoms of Fluorine. Hence, the Chemical formula of the given compound is IF . 5 Both I and F are non-metals(Refer in the figure below), hence the compound is molecular compound as molecular compounds generally consists of non -metals. Name of the compound is Iodine pentafluoride. As there are 5 atoms of F and 1 atom of I, we prefix F element name with ‘penta’ greek suffix and replace the last syllable of the name with ‘ide’ and hence the name of the compound is Iodine pentafluoride. Rules for naming molecular compounds is stated below. Rules for naming binary molecular...
